Nikki Alderson, specialist corporate and executive coach:
- supporting law firms, barristers’ chambers and other organisations in the attraction and retention of female talent within the legal profession, finance and elsewhere; and
- empowering female lawyers and other female professionals to achieve their career ambitions.
As of 2017, women are the majority of practising solicitors, making up 52% of new entrants to the legal profession, and yet comprise only 29% of partners in private practice, just 19% of Equity partners. 2019 figures suggest only 28% of Judges are female, 21% specifically in the Court of Appeal, and women make up only 15% of Silks or Queen’s Counsel.
My mission is to support law firms, barristers’ chambers and other corporate organisations retain female talent and empower busy and ambitious women in law and other female professionals to become the best that they can be, particularly through periods of transition, challenge and change.
For example, when:
- working towards an executive promotion,
- starting a leadership role,
- returning to corporate life after a career break,
- seeking greater fulfilment at work through improved productivity and life balance, or
- starting out on a fresh project such as a new career.
I am passionate about attracting and retaining female talent within the legal and other professions through the coaching and speaking services I provide.

I met Nikki when she gave a coaching session to the Women in Criminal Law network. Nikki’s journey to coaching was inspiring and her approach was friendly and positive. As a result I contacted Nikki to arrange some personal coaching sessions. Nikki was immediately responsive, supportive and flexible to my needs. I found the coaching sessions thought provoking. The key thing for me was Nikki’s ability to help me break down challenges into bite sized tasks, which made them feel less daunting. Nikki encouraged me to think outside the box and look at the issues I was facing in a different way. Nikki is very easy to talk to, she is an excellent listener and gives helpful, constructive feedback. Nikki is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional coaching.
